Over the past several years,
snowboarders have come to demand more and more out of their outerwear. When
once a sweatshirt would suffice as a second-layer of protection from the cold,
today’s snowboarders demand only the very best in under-layer warmth. That’s
where the North Face, a company known across the globe for their
top-of-the-line outdoor apparel, comes in. Their Apex Bionic Soft-shell Jacket
is one of the highest-quality soft-shells on the market today.
The Apex Bionic Jacket is absolutely perfect for winter activities like
snowboarding. It is constructed from North Face’s unique Apex ClimateBlock
water-resistant outer material. The outer shell of the jacket is also windproof
to further keep the elements out.
The jacket isn’t all about keeping the elements out though – it’s also about
keeping warmth in. The fleece-lined interior keeps things toasty when the
temperatures dip below freezing. It truly is amazing how well a jacket as light
as the Apex Bionic performs in frigid conditions.
While the jacket keeps you toasty warm, it is also designed for maximum
comfort. It’s four-way stretch material and design moves with your body so that
hiking up the hill for a run or bombing through the fresh powder isn’t a
hassle. At the same time, the jacket’s design provides the aforementioned
warmth without making you sweat – something that standard sweatshirts and many
jackets have an incredibly difficult time doing. To top things off, the Apex
Bionic Jacket is lightweight.
Though the North Face Apex Bionic Jacket isn’t meant for truly frigid
temperatures, it will hold up in most of the conditions that the mountain can
throw at you. It’s warm, waterproof, and comfortable. And, hey, if things do
get too cold, throwing it under your heavier outer-shell jacket creates a duo
of extreme warmth that is not to be messed with.
